Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:37:50 EDT
Description of Problem: After upgrade of 7.1 to 7.2, cdrom no longer
automounts, and can't be manually mounted, because attempts to do so get
the message that it's not a valid block device. The floppy can be
mounted, and /etc/fstab entry for /dev/cdrom is the same as it was under
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Insert CD
2. Try to mount.
will not mount.
cdrom automounts upon insertion.
Run 'depmod -ae' ; that should solve it. This will be fixed in the next
I've got the same problem after doing a fresh install of 7.2, but running
depmod -ae didn't fix it...
